Question about Akai Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Dvd compartment will not open. I removed the back panel of TV to see if I could see what is in there and noticed the dvd compartment is it's own separate compartment. I didn't bother it any further, I replaced the back panel, went to plug in TV and sparks flew. I now have a TV I cannot use till it is repaired. A child was allowed to use my TV while I was away, so I am assuming something was placed in dvd compartment that shouldn't be there. It shows "unknown disc". Apparently something is in there.

Hi guys, or gals,
I took the TV/DVD combo to Radio Shack, the kid there, and I took the entire TV apart, which was what was needed to even get to the DVD compartment, we took the compartment apart and found that a small, rubber washer surrounding two gears, that work the opening and closing of the DVD player had dry rotted and snapped. I left the kid take my TV home to see if he could locate a washer for it. So now you know. Hope this will help y'all in the future. Suggest that people don't buy TV/DVDM Combo's. (-:

I need a Mitsubishi 52525 schematic to get to the back of the bulb compartment. I tried to replace the bulb and the two plugs on the TV fell out behind the bulb compartment in the TV. Any help would be...


just remove the rear cover and then you can slide the lamp leads back into their slot that is at the rear of the lamp cartridge area. Its very common for them to get pushed back inside the lamp compartment but removing the rear cover will allow you to slide them back into the compartment.

Green projection lamp not working


  1. you will need a manual screwdriver to remove the panel. You need a soft non-abrasive cloth to avoid any contact with your fingers and the lamp assembly.
  2. Turn off the Projector. After the unit has cooled down properly, remove the power cord from the outlet..
  3. Remove Lamp Compartment Door. The lamp compartment on projectors islocated underneath the projector unit. For Rear Projection TVs, the lamp compartment is located in the rear bottom left or right side of the TV.. Remove the screws and the lamp compartment door.
  4. Remove Lamp Assembly. pull out the lamp assembly disconnect any power cords that is still connected to the lamp assembly. Put it aside and don't get it confused with your new lamp!
  5. Clean Lamp Compartment. Dust gets everywhere and while you have the projector open, use a soft cloth to remove any loose dust from the lamp compartment.
  6. Insert New Lamp Assembly. reconnect any power cables to the new lamp if present and slide the new lamp into the compartment in the same orientation that the original lamp came out.
  7. Replace Lamp Compartment Door. Set the lamp compartment door back into place and securely screw in the door without screwing it in too tight

MY PANASONIC PT-50DL54J DLP will just turn off. I


I have posted solutions for similar problems.
There may be a heat issue with the power supply components.
Remove the back panel and blow compressed air into all the component area, (except the fan on the right). The power supply is on the left.
Then vacuum all the dust out.

There may be a problem with the battery in the remote. Weaken batteries can cause the remote to send random signals (including turning off the set).

Unplug the unit! Pull off the access silver panel from the front of the tv. there are 2 sma ll access panels on the front behind the silver panel. The one on the left, allows you to change the bulb, one screw to remove, Just to the right of it there is a second one. This has 2 small screws to remove to access the opening. Once you take this small cover off, you will see the fan compartment. On the top of it on the left side is one small filter, mine was pretty clean. The bear is the one on the bottom, that you can only see the edges, but there is a small opening on the bottom. It looks like it is suspended in mid air. Take a cue tip and clean the underside! I slightly wet my cue tip and it worked fine. I tried to remove the fan compartment, but it would not come out and I did not want to force and break it. Remember to unplug the unit first. After I used the cuetip on the filter, I have a small vacuum and cleaned everything carefully. I had heard to leave it unplugged for about two hours to let it clear after I reassembled the covers. I turned on the set and the message was gone and has never come back. I did not have to reset anythi.ng and worked for me. That was it for mine and it is working fine

Picture fuzzy on dark scenes


Well I finally had the TV picked up by a Toshiba recommended repair place and they are saying that it is a bad Optical Block, also known as the Light Engine. Total for pick up, parts and repairs is $827.00. This seems ridiculous to me when brand new TVs are so much cheaper now. I don't think I will pay that much to have this one fixed.

JVC 48" rear projection AV48WP30 is HAUNTED


Dear Losing Sleep, The symptoms you're describing sounds like a bad tac switch or two. You might notice a bit of a pattern also, consistent with temp changes. (ie: up in the early AM when house got cooler, and bingo set is on). It's not an expensive repair. Tac switches are an item under a buck a piece. However, this is NOT something you want to tackle yourself... This TV is actually built to self destruct if a less than educated tech opens the back. If you remove the rear cover while the power is on you will destroy all DVI programing inside the DVI (Digital Input Module). The only way to restore the programming is to send the unit to JVC. There is a light sensor inside the TV and when the back is removed with the power on the data is erased from the eprom. You might even take it an extra mile when calling around to find a shop to work on it by asking if they know the correct procedure for opening the back of your TV - - If they do know their answer will be something like this: First turn off set and remove power cord then short pins 1 and 2 on the SB connector of digital input module. Before replacing the rear panel remember to remove the short on the SB connector. Do not turn power on until the rear panel is inserted into the cabinet. If you have to work inside the set with power on remove the two cables going to the DVI module. When you find the right shop take the unit in yourself - you'll save a few bucks that way. Hope this helps. Bill

TV remote will not work properly


I have a Mitsubishi WD-52725 TV, too, and have experienced the same problems with it. My solution to the remote not responding is to push the reset button on the front of the TV (to the left of the Power button) with a paper clip and wait for the green light to stop blinking (about 1 minute). Then, turn it back on and try the remote again. Recently, my remote stopped responding when pushing certain buttons on it. I removed the batteries, and all of the little screws including the one inside the battery compartment and gently cleaned the contacts inside the remote and the circuit board with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. After putting it back together, it works fine now.
